Blood Drain (Ex): A vampire rose can suck blood from a living victim with a successful grapple check. If it gets a hold, it drains blood, inflicting 1d4 points of temporary Con damage each round the hold is maintained.

Camouflage (Ex): Since the vampire rose looks like a normal rose bush, it takes a successful DC 20 Spot, Survival, or Knowledge (nature) check to notice it before it attacks.
